could label the republicans or start with ronald reagan, cut taxes, big chunk toss the wealthy and then borrow the money to pay the bills. that's how you get debt, $2 trillion, $3 trillion, $4 trillion. ronald reagan had this concept, starve the beast. he said the way we're going to kill social security and medicare and medicaid, we're at right now, is to make this government's debt so big that we can't afford them. >> guest: absolutely. one second, sir. ronald reagan was never in support of killing any of those programs. i mean, that is hyperbole. >> caller: he wanted to tax on the wealthy. let me finish, please, you get -- >> guest: he cut taxes across the board, sir, on everybody. >> caller: start to filibuster because i'm going to hammer you with a question. he lored the tax on the wealthy from 70 down to 40, and that amounted over the 30 years trillions and trillions of dollars being given away to the wealthy. do you think there's a correlation between us being trillions and trillions of dollars in the hole and the fact we gave trillions and trillions of dollars away to th
a conservative face on, but the truth is coming out now. >> talk from your perspective about the ronald reagan and his belief in god and non- churchgoing that we saw, and bill clinton, who has spoken out about god and churchgoing and family and all that. i mean, how do people deal with this? >> yeah, it's fascinating. i asked former vice-president quayle in an interview i did th him recently. i said, "you know, you, dan, are a churchgoing, bible-carrying presbyterian, and bill clinton is a churchgoing, bible-carrying baptist. so why is it that you differ on social issues?" i dot think he'd ever been asked that question before. he kind of flubbed it. he said, "well, i think it's a difference of interpretation." that's the short answer, and i think that's probably true. do i wish that reagan had gone to church more and exhibited more in his own life and family some of the things that he believed? well, sure, of course. i wish i did. i wish i exhibited in my life more consistently more of the things that i say and believe. but i don't know. it mystified me because-- mmy carter, you know, was anot
weapons ban is supported by sylvester stallone and ronald reagan. two guys i never thought to see to harried reid's left. and he felt so bad that he let this ban fail, i know you're terrified of the nra turning on you and giving a low rating. you almost lost your senate seat
at these three world leaders too. ronald reagan never made sure his time matched -- >> okay. this is just ridiculous. >> there you go. >> stungningly profind. >> let's go to politico, please. with us now -- >> also makes him superior to ronald reagan, right? >> whatever. >> the messiah has returned to israel. look at that. >> are you kidding me? >>> with us now is chief white house correspondent for politico, mike allen, here with the morning playbook. >> this is a good one. >> watch the live pictures while we talk to mike. i think we can walk and chew gum at the same time according to joe. >> i doubt it. >> mike, new report from politico suggest a number of big name democrats are not thrilled with the idea of ashley judd challengi challenging senate minority leader in conduct. some party leaders including former president bill clinton is trying to court another candidate. the kentucky secretary of state. the former president encouraged her to run assuring his and hillary clinton's support should she try to unseat mcconnell. judd under fire for a speech she delivered in 2010 she compared
. and that's not unprecedented. ronald reagan never went two terms, george w. bush took the tail end of his second term. but there has been a difficult relationship with netanyahu. and he goes at a time when the whole region is in turmoil. >> you're right, they're lowering, the white house is lowering expectations, the trip is largely to offset the 2009 trip that president obama took to cairo. where he made a speech to cairo and then did not go to israel, went on to buchenwald, talked about the holocaust, but missed the beginnings of israel. this is a chance to kind of, i don't want to say make it right. but to reach out to israelis in a way he hasn't before. he's not speaking at the knesset. he's speaking to young israelis at a convention center, he's doing things differently at this time. >> and what's the significance of him going to the weitzman statue. this was the leader of zionism. and that's anathema to many people in the arab world, but a way of saying i stand with israel. to israel it's important because it predates the holocaust. by centuries. millennium, it says that israelis ha
's neoconservatism were alive and well in ronald reagan in george w. bush who promoted a conservatism marked by compassion and common sense for the every man. today's conservatism is perceived as matter high minded nor of the people. existing instead in some nether reger
bush or ronald reagan, correct me colonel north, if i'm wrong, you worked for president reagan, i can't see a president doing nothing time and time again and the only people he seems to be nice to are radicals like mohammed morsi? >> and the united nations. what we've done, we've gone to the united nations well so many time, and what he's done is allowed himself and believe that the united nations was going to stop the north koreans, inter-continental ballistic missiles. they've done it and unless we say carefully, if you have a business that's doing business with either of these two countries, you cannot do business with the united states. >> sean: colonel north, let me ask you this, do you think the world by these acts of aggression, and that's how i view them. do you think they perceive barack obama as weak? >> what they're hoping for is american leadership from the front and they're not getting it today. >> nobody thinks america is weak and anybody who does needs to look at what we did in afghanistan. we put men on the ground, we put our money behind it and we've accomplished our
or ronald reagan, can i see a president doing nothing time and time again and the only people he seems to be nice to are radicals like mohammed morsi. >> we've got gon to the oouts united nations. some times oh, good grieve. he's aloud himself and hope the united nations is going to somehow stop or north koreans. they've done it. iranians will do it, too. and this is unless they impose kinds of sanctions if have you a business doing business with these countries dmoukt business in the united states. >> do you think the world by these acts after gregs is how i view them, do you they they perceive barack obama as weak? >> they're hoping for leadership from the front. they're not getting it today. >> nobody thinks america is weak. anyone who does needs to look at what we did. we have put men on the ground. and accomplished our mission. it's time for the american foam say enough of the war. >> i see him as weak. i think the president is weak. that is a shame. because do you know what? america needs to be strong. if we don't fill the void and step up and lead from the front then i shoulder
. in the 80's college campuses were very liberal but lots of young people liked ronald reagan answered obviously had two terms in the white house. i guess i disagree with that idea. in fact, on college campuses today i think kids are pretty conservative. >> bill: here is why you are desperately wrong, juan. two wreensz. anti-vietnam was a very narrow cast. and you and i were in college at the time. it was centered on the vietnam war. it took a lot of colleges by surprise, the we hem nens of it there wasn't before that a history of left wing faculties. some were, some weren't. now, the very people who were protesting are running the college campuses. many have not eradicated their point of view. university of minnesota had recently put bill ayers, the guy who literally planted bombs in the 1960's on their faculty. >> right. >> bill: on their faculty. >> i try point out to people the ludicrousness of that the actual literal analog unrepentant abortion clinic bomber were teaching humanities course. would we think that was insane? >> bill: it would never happen in a million years in this c
two defended the principal. sh says she's a great principal. ronald reagan waved a gun in western movies and he became president of the united states. >> ronald reagan acted with a m monkey and then became a mon president. it's not like she joined the gang. it is just a movie. and why not what ti don't know l can do because they gave her a waiver to be in this movie. soo i don't s so i don't see how they can do much other than complain. and what really should be investigated is what's going on at the school. >> that's the priority. >> i've talked about this before about teachers being strippers and porn stars. i want to say yet again i never had a teacher who was a stripper and porn star and i feel cheated. >> i'm so sorry. >> how do you really know. >> i'm not even touching that. i want to get to the other story. this nazi salute. look at this? this is how one soccer player in greece decided to celebrate his game winning goal over the weekend. his excuse and what the league is doing about this after the break. she is, yes she is.

't add up long term. they agree with that much as president ronald reagan and speaker tip o'neill agreed with the very same notion back in 1982 and 1983. the numbers weren't adding up long term for social security, and something had to be done. and some painful decisions had to be made in the early 1980's. and to this day we thank god for president ronald reagan and speaker tip o'neill for having the bipartisan courage to do the tough things to make the tough decisions and adjust an important program so that social security has been saved for the past three decades. we need that kind of statesmanship out of the white house today. frankly, we need that kind of leadership out of the white house. you know, we're calling for bipartisan action. i think it's worth noting -- and it pains me to say this -- for the first time in 92 years we are considering a budget without seeing a plan from the president of the united states. he announced just last week that he was just going to wait in sending us his budget plan. it will be two months late by the time it arrives, according to the president's ow
. >> ronald reagan faced these challenges because he had to deal with a badly broken budget process that was a product of the 1974 act. one of my responsibilities was to draft the decision for reagan called the budget process reform act that would eal with these things. i introduced it. we had over 200 sponsors. we had a bipartisan sponsorship in the senate. as you can see from problems we are experiencing, the process has never changed. if you want to find something that is capable of being completely bipartisan, multi-partisan, omni-partisan, it is fixing the budget process in a neutral way, because once you subtract everybody's passionate ideology, it is easier to come to agreement about putting a whole thing in a box and making sure there are priorities. making sure the system has teeth, because the big problem is you can blow off the process and people do. >> we started a few minutes ate, so we have time for audience questions. if anybody has a question, please raise your hand. i will ask the same thing of you, that when you stand, identify yourself, and if you have a question
for ronald reagan and for george h.w. bush. so he's really -- he started out as a political consultant. he's certainly a republican. he's certainly a conservative. that's reflected in fox news. i did a quiz with him that a professor at ucla had cooked up to measure conservativism versus liberalism. and he took it and so did i, by the way. and it turns out that he is more conservative than the network. and he agreed that that's probably true. >> so he's obviously very conservative in that position that he has, it filters down, i assume, on the network. i want to play a clip. this is sarah palin. she used to be a fox news contributor until the last election. this is what she said at the conservative political action conference that took place in washington this past weekend. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, yet keep getting rehired, raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in the party, then show should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architect can head on back to -- [ cheers ] -- they can head on back to the great lone star state
egregious obvious example of that but even ronald reagan had to raise taxes seven times due to the fact that their other policies were shrinking the middle class. now when i say their economic policies are unsuccessful, that's because from my point of view, i want a healthy, thriving middle class. the progressive side of things liberals in this country, while we certainly care for the poor, we don't do it at the exclusion of the middle class our the exclusion of millionaires. but the middle class has been squeezed so horribly by the -- the -- you know, the promise of trickle-down economics and the chicago school of economics it just -- i mean from -- something as -- the heavy side of it and the shock doctrine, to the crap idea that somehow if you just let the job makers not pay taxes they will hide all of their money in vegas rather than the cayman islands and we'll all live off of the interest it's absurd nonsense that it's the bootstrapers and that anybody who finds themselves with cancer is just lazy ultimately in some way. it's their fault for having a crap
the definition. but what i'd say -- i'd say what we have now is de facto amnesty. jon: yeah, the fact is ronald reagan signed the legislation in the mid '80s that was going to fix the immigration problem once and for all, and here we are 20 years lateerer, more than that, with, you know, 11 and 12 million illegal immigrants in this country. >> well, those events of the '80s still haunt the immigration debate today. an amnesty was given out, the border was not secured, and in the 2000s, especially under the administration of george push, there was a huge increase in the number of illegal immigrants. the one thing republicans do agree on is they need to do something about this. even the ones who think border security only is the way to go, they all feel they have to do something about it. the problem just cannot continue to exist as it has for the last decade. jon: well, and the speeches, maybe the presidential campaign speeches continue. we'll see how long it takes to get some legislative language out there. byron york, thank you. >> thank you, jon. jenna: well, a major american city dealing wit
, remember what happened in 1986, ronald reagan had immigration reform, they call it amnesty and we had people pouring across the porous border. that cannot happen again. then republicans have to try to figure out a way to spread that needle. are they offering citizenship, even though it's a long pass, or are they just going to offer some kind of legal status in this country? rand paul spoke the other day. he did not use the worth citizenship, though he clearly support immigration reform. that's going to be a challenge for republicans to figure out where they're going to be on the question of citizenship. >> just don't call it amnesty. because the base hates that word. >> oh, they do. they now say reagan provided that. >> he did. >> yes. >> thanks very much, gloria. >>> when we come back, it's taken more than 35 years, but a pioneering spacecraft has now gone beyond the solar system. ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. great first gig! let's go! party! awwwww... arigato! we are outta here! party.....
. when ronald reagan came in and we didn't have any money, we watched every dime we spent. former deputy attorney general of the united states, larry thompson of atlanta, and i was united states attorney in alabama, we were such dyed in the wool reaganauts, when we went to a conference, we roomed together, separate beds. we thought it was cheaper. it would save money for the taxpayers. this kind of mentality needs to get back into what we are doing. i would just say that it's time for us to confront it. the vision of the members of this side and i think a lot of members of that side is not that far apart. i want to be clear about a couple of things. this budget needs to be put on a path to balance. it can be done without cutting spending in any dramatic way. all you have to do is reduce the rate of growth in spending. the budget will balance in ten years. we need to do that. we need to plan to do that. as i explained before, the debt is already pulling down economic growth in america. it's pulling down the growth that we have. the debt has reached such a level, 104% of g.d.p., our gross
of -- or a play on words of what ronald reagan said, we can't even trust yet much less verify. but we do have to test the proposition that this can be resolved diplomatically and if it can't, then i've repeat today bb what i've said publicly, we'll leave all options on the table
to. the real divided government can work. ronald reagan proved it could work. clinton proved it could work. those are guys who got huge legislation enacted. the reagan economic plan, immigration reform, social security reform --here is the thing -- the president has got to lead. for four years we have had a president was not willing to take that kind of leadership to make congress work. i hope he will this term. >> i would say this is not the season -- compromise is not in the air. but i think that the republicans in the house realize it is in their political interest to turn the heat down and not have a food fight every few weeks for the american public. what i think is in the air and is happening is people from the far left and the far right are starting to come together against institutions and the governing parties, and you will see more of that. you saw it last week with the drones. you will see it with the banks on wall street. byinesses that are impacted the federal government in terms of getting money. there is increasingly from the left and right a coming together against the
